Rachael Swinnerton

Head Coach & Programme Director

CheerForce Founder

Team England Pom Head Coach / Odyssey (Worlds Team) Coach

I’ve been involved in ‘the world’ of cheerleading and dance, coaching, competing and choreographing for over 16 years. I’m the program director of CheerForce, launching CheerForce Odyssey with coach Jonny Kirby over 5 years ago, and I’m now the head coach of CheerForce Ten, which is now in its 9th competitive season.
CheerForce have countless national championship titles in both cheer and dance, with CF10 Achieving over 15 European dance bids in the last 4 years alone, an NDA bid plus 2 worlds bids for dance.
I’m proud to have secured the best choreography award at Jamfest Europe for our International Pom routine last season, with many more best choreography titles won over the years for both cheer & Dance.
I am the founder of the first unified team England Pom team and led the team to win their first top 10 wins in 2018 at ICU worlds.
On top of my commitments with CheerForce, I’ve worked with teams all over the country for clean-up and technique camps and judge cheer and dance all over the UK at both Regional and National level.
Cheerleading and dance is my passion in life. My absolute favourite thing is to see an athlete accomplish a goal they have worked so hard for.
I believe cheerleading and dance teach unique and valuable life lessons to all involved and am so thankful for the opportunities it has presented to me and my family over the years.
